How to make an Adam Curtis documentary:
1. Take an idea, preferably one advanced by Cold War-era technocrats or ideologues, and a subsequent historical event.
2. Pretend one caused the other, even if they're only tangentially related.
3. Make sure the narrative meanders around in a non-linear fashion. Make sure the overarching theme is "the problems caused by politics and power."
4. Throw in some old pop music, a score from 60's sci-fi, archival footage from the 50's and then edit the whole mess into a three-hour collage that is trippy as fuck.
5. Cash that check from the BBC.
